Skin Care Awareness Month
September is the month of Skin Care Awareness. Skin care products that you have been using during the summer months may change as environmental changes take place in the fall months ahead. When it comes to your skin, the two most important factors, especially in Arizona are to Hydrate + Protect!
If the summer months were rough on your skin, focus on recovering your skin with some of our highlighted products and services:
SkinCeuticals® Triple Lipid Restore— anti-aging lipid replenishment contains a patented lipid ratio of 2% ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids proven to nourish the skin and correct signs of aging.
SkinBetter Science® Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment— a high-performance, triple-action formula that helps to bring moisture and hydration balance back to the skin. Natural Moisturizing Factors (maintains the stratum corneum), Barrier Function (Lipid Bilayers comprised of ceramides, essential fatty acids and cholesterol), and Hyaluronic Acid provide heavy hydration without the weight.
SkinBetter Science® AlphaRet Overnight Cream— provides the same results as Rx Tretinoin 0.025% with less redness and irritation by their patented ethyl lactyl retinoate (ELR) formula combined with alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) delivers remarkable results to reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Try pairing AlphaRet with Even Tone Correcting Serum to target brown patches, sun damage, and the appearance of hyperpigmentation and discoloration.
SkinCeuticals® C E Ferulic— daytime vitamin C serum that combats signs of aging and protects against environmental damage.
SkinBetter Science® Alto Defense Serum— provides daily antioxidant protection, redness, and underlying free radical defense with 19 powerful antioxidants to prevent the causes of skin aging.
The obvious, most important, and sometimes overlooked product that needs to be applied daily and throughout the day is sunscreen! ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica & Eryfotona Ageless SPF 50 liquid-based sunscreens are our favorite as its innovative formula contains DNA Repairsomes® which are clinically proven to repair existing sun damage. They are fast-absorbing, ultralight emulsions providing all-mineral broad-spectrum sun protection.
When thinking about Skin Care Awareness, having a Complete Skin Exam should be your first step. Our Dermatology trained PA will evaluate your skin from head to toe since early detection is essential for preventive skin health. It is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation that full-body skin exams should be done yearly or more often if you are at a higher risk of skin cancer.
Fall into proper skincare by rejuvenating your skin from the harsh summer months with HALO™ laser and Forever Young BBL™ treatments! HALO™ is the world’s first tunable Hybrid Fractional Laser combining ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in a single pass to maximize results and minimize downtime. BroadBand Light with Forever Young BBL™ is a comprehensive phototherapy system that is an excellent choice to target benign pigment and vascular lesions.
